    We were underwhelmed by the on-site osteria. The service was fabulous but the food was uninspired, in our humble opinion.

    We booked two beds but got two bedrooms! Excellent & friendly service. The view from our peaceful cottage was a Tuscan dream. If you get a chance, stay here!!! We were sorry we were booked elsewhere the following night and would have preferred at least another night here. Perfect!

    Showers are a bit dark & tiny. Water temperature was difficult to control. Restaurant (also owned by the family) has nice food but is pricey for the area. Breakfast is further away in the main part of the property but within easy walk.

    Stayed in a 4-bed cottage - enough room & clean. Parking in front. Cottages quiet & cosy with own kitchen incl. utensils. Breakfast was simple but delicious - included home-made pies & great coffee. The family owning the place is very welcoming. This place would great in summer to stay for exploring nearby locations e.g. Cascate del Mulino. Montemerano nearby has good eating-out choices. Lots of wineries in the region.

    The heating was abit up and down. Bit cold at times. The Wi-Fi wasnt very good, only available in 2 small areas in the house.

    We arrived very early from another city, i hoped we could atleast store our luggage, but they very kindly let us check in right away! We had a spacious 2 bed cottage it had almost everything we needed. Overall we had a wonderful stay.

    They advertised that there was air conditioning and wifi, but we found neither in the cabin we stayed in. Since we had to open the window to get some air, the early morning hunting with dogs was rather loud. The property is also under construction, and while there was no work going on it was took away from the ambience. The nearby town was small with only a couple options for dinner.

    The proprety is very quiet, most of the time. We stayed in one of the cabins, which had plenty of room and was clean. The receptionists were friendly, and the breakfast was homemade and looked very good.

    At a beautiful place but with poor services for the rooms wich really needs to be developed.
    • Leisure trip
    • Couple
    • Classic Double Room
    • Stayed 4 nights

    At the arrival, we had a really short presentation of the services without any info about possibilities at the region. The majority of the staff only speaks italian and that's definitely not an option in a region which is world famous and visited by foreigners as well! C'mon! Few sentences only! The rooms at this hotel are only ideal for couples without children. Majority of the rooms don't have separate window, only a door. Really important for family travellers: in some rooms, there is no fridge, but this in 38 Celsius is not an option for a family. (For this, choose the bungalows and definitely not the rooms.) In our room the air conditioning was not working. Unfortunately the restaurant is only open from 19.30 and serves really expensive, small portioned meals and besides I think that 5 Euros for coperto is not a fair thing, although the meals are tasty and well prepared. If you need spectacle and design, it's your choice but if you really wants to eat a lunch or a dinner, you have to go to the village of Montemerano (1 km) each time or to Manciano (cca 8 km) where you can find good places or shopping possibilities for cooking.

    This hotel is in the Tuscany countryside, ideal to discover Saturnia, Montemerano, Manciano and southern Tuscany. The clean and well maintained swimming pool is a positive option. The staff is friendly and the breakfast tastes good, with a really well prepared Italian cappuccino. The rooms are cleaned every day.

    To much sugar at the breakfast buffet. The room was damp. Bad internett resepcion in the room and bad signal in the area in general.

    Pretty buildings. Good parking. Nice restaurant. Big room. Very short drive to Montemerano city sentre and to the Cascate del Gorello (I recomend going there late in evening when there is less people. Too crowded at daytime).

    Better than expected!

    • Stayed 1 night

    One very small negative was my daughter and I struggled to apply make up as bathroom lighting was poor and it was the only room with a mirror, so bathroom lighting could be improved or mirrors in the bedrooms with lighting.

    The accomodation was very close to Saturnia and easily found . Everything was better than I had expected. There is some building work but I don't think it spoilt our stay in any way. The staff were all friendly and accommodating the grounds, and swimming pool were perfect. Little details like a hammock in the garden make it special. Surrounded by beautiful Tuscan countryside, with Black horses on site. Had the pool to ourselves in the morning and evening on two occasions. The accomodation was classically furnished with a high quality finish. The front of the cottages had clean simple gardens with nice loungers for relaxing privately. The evening meal was recommendable, and they even remembered that I had mentioned it was my daughter's birthday and served her sweet with a candle! Whole experience memorable and better than expected.

    Beautiful peaceful place but although chalets look lovely they are small and quite dark.
    • Leisure trip
    • Family with older children
    • Cottage (2 Adults+ 2 Children)
    • Stayed 2 nights

    The chalets need a little more care and attention to detail eg the screens have holes in, the kitchen equipment is sparse (not enough glasses,cups or even towels) and some of the light bulbs needed replacing. The lighting needs updating as they are dark and not enough light to do make up with anywhere.

    The location and the hotel are beautiful , with horses in the field, a pool with loads of sunbeds , a separate restaurant. The chalets look quaint and have seating outside in your own little garden
